Everyone knows that absinthe is some serious (albeit awesome) shiz. I’ve never tried it, obviously, as I’m prissy to the point of ridiculosity. You’re talking to a person who’s never tried cocaine because Regina Morrow in Sweet Valley High DIED the first time she did.
A shrub-like perennial, wormwood is a key ingredient in absinthe, the emerald-colored alcoholic drink (so on-trend!), helping to give the beverage its distinctive bitter taste. I would never drink of a drop of it IRL, but in my beauty products? Fabsinthe! The Body Shop feels my skittishness about drinking absinthe and instead infused it into their new Absinthe Purifying Hand Care range with absinthe extract. Here, the details of the collection.
Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream ($10 / 30ML – $20 / 100ML) – Your new handbag essential. Apply whenever hands need a shot of moisture or to conceal bad odors.
Absinthe Purifying Hand Butter ($20) – Give hands a blissful treat with this intensely moisturizing hand butter with a luxurious texture that simply melts into skin.
